Project Awareness and Special Sports

The mission of PAASS is to create an inclusive, supportive environment for individuals with developmental delays and learning challenges allowing them to participate in community-based sports and recreational programs.

What We Do

We utilize high school and middle school “buddies” that work one on one with players teaching them the mechanics of sports. More than this however, buddies socially engage players and develop long lasting bonds and relationships. Coaches oversee players and buddies, and help coordinate games. Since its inception, PAASS has worked to connect players, buddies, coaches, and parents together and build a community of support, awareness, and acceptance. PAASS is looking to expand current programs to include additional sport clinics and recreational programs.
